of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours
sandy we saw governor christy and president obama not just side by side but pracing each other for their common concern and shared focus and placing the needs of the people first and to ensure whatever needed to be done, would be done. for anybody who thought this natural disaster would be the kick in the pants to work together finally. something happened this afternoon that absolutely shatters that. a republican rally in the state of virginia featured governor mcdonnell. they were for senate candidate allen. he was a failure of a president whose reelection would be bad for virginia and bad for the united states. doesn't matter which side you look at if you take governor christy's view that president obama is the savior for new jersey or that he's an absolute failure. the fact is an act of god couldn't bring democrats and republicansing to in this country. that's why we need an independent in congress. >> congressman cicilline. >> thank you for hosting this debate. as this campaign comes to a close i want to thank the people of rhode island who shared their ideas with me in thi

or ron paul, it was a long time out when i said if we don't run christie it will be romney and he'll lose. i took that back six months later because obama's made such a mess of the economy. i travel a lot out in america and people are really, really hurting. there are a lot of people who are unemployed, underemployed, they know they're not doing what they should be doing. obama care is coming down the track like a bullet train and a lot of people are going to have to go out of business or have already gone out of business. >> where do you give obama credit? most powerful arguments i hear are where a republican can give the democratic president some credit and vice versa, where a democrat can give mitt romney some credit. where do you credit the president? >> i like the drone attacks. i don't know why liberals like the drone attacks. if you're going to compare waterboarding a couple of terrorists at guantanamo three times to attacks on civilian populations to get one or two terrorists, i would say that the waterboarding is way better than that. but i think -- i think it's worth getting the
